Announcing Our 2024 Moonshot Pilot Accelerator Quarter-Finalists

Here are the 50 TV pilot scripts chosen as our quarter-finalists, representing the top 10% of all Moonshot Pilot Accelerator submissions!

2024 Moonshot Pilot Accelerator Quarter-Finalists laurel

We received 515 submissions for the 2024 Moonshot Pilot Accelerator, and this week, we announced our 50 quarter-finalists! These scripts represent the top 10% of all submissions.

These quarter-finalists were chosen based on the strength of their TV pilot scripts and their application questions. They were invited to submit a 2-minute pitch video, which will help determine which projects will advance in the competition.

Next, our team will be selecting the 24 scripts that will advance to the semi-final round. Each of our semi-finalists will have their script read by two of our industry judges — showrunners, TV series creators, high-level producers, and working TV writers. Plus, they'll be invited to an exclusive virtual networking event, and they'll gain access to a video library of virtual workshops.

Our judges will lend their expertise from years working in the industry to select our finalists, who will participate in an interview round.

Finally, we will choose our 6-8 fellows! These fellows will hone their pitches and gain industry knowledge from our guest experts. Then, they'll have the opportunity to pitch to major companies and representatives during Pitch Week this summer. Companies hearing pitches include HBO, Netflix, Starz, Amazon Studios/Prime Video, Berlanti, Broadway Video, Fifth Season, Element Pictures, Gersh, Irish Cowboy, Level Forward, BFD, Fusion Studios, Freevee, and more.
